My research interests are focused on heterogeneous catalysis, more specifically, in zeolites and their behaviour on hydrocarbon conversion reactions.
Regarding the ZeoMorph project, my main goals will be directly focused on the long term catalytic testing. I will investigate the formation of coke in the MTH reactions varying both catalysts and conditions. In addition to that, another important objective is achieving a comprehensive understanding the deactivation process of zeolites during the methanol to hydrocarbons reaction.
